    I updated my pics with some "OC" once there is "official" support for the AW systems we should see a change, but who knows if that is going to happen. Its a real nice upgrade over the 680m and has been very easy to use so far! good luck, and post your benchmarks once you get it.

    It will come with the upgrade kit, just ensure you mention you need them.

    I will shortly, currently figuring out solutions to creating the most stable experience with the 980m. Currently i am experience throttling issues and such, due to a lack of vbios support, until i fix this i will not be updating new benchmarks. I hope to have it up and running by Sunday at the latest.

    980m core 150 mem 400.JPG Here you go, with a slight OC on the card x40 on all cores, i will do a heavy bench on it soon, hoping to get around a 9300 score.
